Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The SmallBall Nation of Anti-Goatsack is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Billy with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 28.463 billion Anti-Goatsackians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keely. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Anti-Goatsackian economy, worth a remarkable 3,886 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 136,559 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft, every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and some Anti-Goatsackian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Anti-Goatsack's national animal is the Beaner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anti-Goatsack is ranked 1,770th in the world and 69th in Osiris for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 19,495.29 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
